4th Of July Special: Here are the 76 Most American Things Ever

Happy 4th of July from the editors here at The Blaze!

As the divisions in our country get to the point of boiling over this election season (It’s a tax! It’s a mandate!) it might be healthy to take a day off and appreciate what it is to be “American.”  So this Independence Day, The Blaze gives you seventy-six things (get it, 1776) we can all agree are the most American.
